Vancouver Imagined: The Way We Weren’t

March was a special month for DBN, with TWO events! Draw By Night #34.5 found us teamed up with the Museum of Vancouver and fellow drawing enthusiasts and local meet-up group Vancouver Urban Sketchers.

Vancouver has been shaped by multiple decisions about what we chose to do and not to do. The built environment surrounding us provides clues about the nature of these debates, but it doesn’t tell us the full story. Vancouver Imagined: The Way We Weren’t, guest curated by Jason Vanderhill of Illustrated Vancouver, showcased the work of architectural illustrators and model makers in the context of unrealized urban development projects, and provided a unique way to understand the city. Had these projects been given full assent, Vancouver would look dramatically different than it does today.

We spent a fun evening among other enthusiastic drawers of all skill levels. Inspiration was found in the fantastical architectural renderings in Vancouver Imagined, the MOV’s view of English Bay and the West End; the MOV’s permanent and feature exhibitions; and with each other.

Oh yes, and we made it onto Scout List and Vancouver Daily Secret (we’re #532!)
